. president obama just wrapped up a press conference in new jersey, alongside new jersey governor chris christie, after surveying the storm damage. we'll get to that in a minute. but first, hurricane sandy will go down as one of the most expensive natural disasters ever to hit america. but loss goes deeper than dollars. goes deeper than money. loss can be emotional and memories. loss comes in many forms. listen to this new jersey woman. [ crying ] >> i'm sorry. i know. i'm sorry. >> i want everybody to get help. >> yeah, we're going to do that. >> reach out. we don't deserve this. [ crying ] our house. everything is gone. >> eric: a lot of pain out there. her story is one of many. but we have seen acts of heroism, neighbors helping neighbors. the american people always come through in times of crisis. we have want to take it around the table and talk about the stories, some experiences we have had in the last few days. you have one for us? >> bob: yeah. i was totally taken away with the new york city hospital, that has babies in various states -- premature or babies that are sick on res
commuter car entering the city must have at least three people in it. president obama and governor romney's renewed campaign come as the latest polls show president obama lead big six points in eye but locked in a tight balle with romney in new hampshire and wisconsin. nearly all interviews conducted before hurricane sandy, which just might end up being the defining moment of this election. joining me today to discuss all of this and more, msnbc political analyst and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine, john heilemann. msnbc political analyst and executive editor of msnbc.com, richard wolffe. msnbc political analyst, jonathan alter of bloomberg view, and msnbc political analyst and former dnc, karen finney, hopefully joining us shortly. john, i go to you first. in terms of sandy being an inflection point, game changer, if you will, a term we do not toss around lightly, are we -- is it -- is it a game changer? can you prognosticate that far? do you think the president is stronger coming out of the sandy response as a candidate? >> look, there's no question that if you think abo
well, would say -- to say that michelle obama's not heaping praise on governor romney's time, his leadership in massachusetts, isn't that apples and oranges? those aren't the same thing. >> it actually is showing, though, the impact of all the praise that chris christie is heaping upon barack obama and him getting a political benefit from that. >> okay. >> more than just -- actually, probably the better comparison, tamron, is 9/11 after the 9/11 terrorist attacks where democrats and republicans rallied together around george w. bush who had been in the presidency just less than a year after winning a very hotly contested and contentious election. and the country coming together. and we're seeing that to a lesser extent right now play out on the east coast of new jersey and new york. >> thank you so much. i greatly appreciate -- go ahead, i'm sorry, keith, we're almost out of time, i'm sorry. >> i think it also shows the collapse of mitt romney's support mechanism in some ways. not that chris christie's abandoning him, but you also have bob mcdonnell of virginia who praised obama,
in attitude? it's called a momentum shift. >> obama: governor christie throughout this process has been responsive and aggressive and i just want to thank him for his extraordinary leadership. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his compassion for the people of our state. >> jennifer: that's called political euphoria occurring when state, local, and federal officials of both parties work together to do what is in the best interests of the people. let's hope it is contagious.

's trip. on the ground, president obama and governor christie visited relief shelters throughout the area. the governor offered this assessment of the president to storm victims. he means what he says. it's important that he is here. christie had more praise later on. >> we spent a significant afternoon together, surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together, to be able to show the president that personally, had an opportunity to see it and discuss it at length, and going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks and see the president and his concern, the concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. i discussed all those issues today with the president, and i'm pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately, to help get us those things, while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me, since before the storm hit. i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend, and it's been a great working rela
a way to say yes. >> president obama and governor christie have been working closely throughout this crisis. governor christie yesterday found himself defending his praise over the last several days for president obama. >> the president of the united states and i have had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and interest that i think leadership should be giving to this type of situation. this was a comfortable and relaxing interaction i've had with the president since i've known him. and i think it's because we're both doing what we want to do which is get things done. there will be some folks who criticize me for complimenting him. well, you know what? i speak the truth. that's what i always do. sometimes you like it, sometimes you don't. sometimes politicians like it, sometimes they don't. but i say what i feel and what i believe. and i'm just doing the same thing with the president of the united states. so i do pinch myself every day. you know, like when i got on marine one, i'm pinching myself, believe me. sandy and bill christie's s

front property, a restaurant obliterated and what president obama and governor christie are seeing as they fly up and down the shoreline. we saw marine one go by in a convoy with helicopters about ten minutes ago and making their rounds. but i don't think a lot of people expect a lot from the federal government in the short term. >> yeah. >> right now people are just trying to deal with their immediate needs, moving in with neighbors, staying with friends. we have heard reports that some utility companies are talking about perhaps turning off water services, for example, because there could be contamination in the system. people are hunkering down and the work is just beginning. in this town, for example, the roads are covered with -- some places, several feet of sand. they're impassablimpassable. impossible to get in and out of some communities up and down the shoreline and in new jersey. again, to think of at this point of a lot of relief supplies arriving, people are hunkering down trying to deal with the near term right now. >> let me correct myself. it's congressman steve isra
administrati administration, whether it's president obama or governor romney, is we treat it as a national problem and we have huge varieties between states and education levels and gender. >> let's talk about the psyc psychology of it. are people looking at the numbers and measures how they feel? whatever the case, they're measures how they feel at their home right now. >> absolutely. it's a good media story to talk about the number that changes month to month. oh, my god the unemployment rate is 7.9%. do i have a job that pays enough? do i have several part-time jobs? will i find one if i lose one? that's what matters at an individual level. >> we know how that factor into who the public will vote for on tuesday. who makes me feel more comfortable about my future. >> what's odd about this is you think those areas hurting the most would be most likely to blame washington and president obama. they're most likely to vote democratic. people who do not have jobs who are struggling and not earning sufficient income seem much more likely to gravitate toward a party with a safety net. people who

"/nbc/marist. governor romney, 44%. in wisconsin, president obama at 49%. in new hampshire, president obama at 49%, governor romney at 47%. so the good news is that's a lead for president obama, from the democratic are perspective. the bad news is he's been dropping. in iowa, that lead was eight points, now it's six. in wisconsin, that lead is now three points, it was six. new hampshire, it was a seven-point lead, it's now two. so if you actually map it, it's shrinking very dramatically five days left until the election. are you worried about that trend? you must be. >> not at all. not at all. we had always anticipated that there would be a very, very close race. but i think, basically, what it's going to boil down to is who do we trust. and i think the polling will show that the american people trust this president. i think when you've got a situation where the president is either basically tired or leading in all of these battleground states, you've got, just the eyes will tell you that some of them are going to come out in his favor, if not all. but i think the president clearly, you've got to
. >> obama: governor romney talks about small businesses but governor, when you were in massachusetts, small businesses development ranked about 48th i think out of 46 in massachusetts because the policies you're promoting don't help small businesses. >> cenk: i don't know if he did it on purpose but i loved that. he accidentally said he ranked 48th and then all of the fact checkers said no, actually he was third from the bottom not second. how about bain? you didn't create jobs. that wasn't your job. as we showed you in the commercial, he thought his job was to harvest profits out of the companies and if he left them to die well so be it. in fact, he did leave a lot of them to die. this guy has no credentials on job creation. and his proposals are identical to bush's and maybe even worse because they even further right wing. that's the reality. that's what i think president obama should have focused on this entire time. he did a pretty decent job with this campaign but i would have hit hard on those categories bu
